In some cities a map is right at your feet.
While most cities or even countries can not boast of fancy manhole covers, the few that do also can boast to having maps at the feet of their inhabitants.
First off we have this lovely example in Seattle
Next is Anaheim
For the next we have to travel across the globe to Akashi, Japan. This manhole aptly shows that the 135th meridian as it cuts through japan, with Akashi being the "Meridian Town".
Last but surely not least we have another from the city Nemuro, Japan.
Have I missed out on one you know? Post it in a comment!
